LONDON - Amid increased COVID-19 cases, London’s hotel industry reported lower occupancy but higher room rates, according to preliminary December 2021 data from STR.

  • Occupancy: 53.4%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): GBP153.63
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): GBP82.08

The occupancy level was the lowest in the market since July 2021. A month earlier in November, London’s 66.3% occupancy level was the highest in the market since February 2020 (76.1%). The December ADR level, however, was the market’s highest since December 2019.
